2011 Central Ohio Film Critics Association Award Winners

Central Ohio love Drive. They love Nicolas Winding Refn and Ryan Gosling and I don’t blame them. I just wish more Associations and Societies were brave enough to give it the attention it deserves. Away from Drive’s wins here, check out the Best Actress category and cheeky little wins for Source Code and Hanna. As ever, check out the full list of winners below: Continue reading

2011 Internet Film Critics Society Award Winners

Although Drive isn’t your typical action flick, I’m happy with anyone who gives it recognition, resulting in the IFCS getting some extra brownie points from me before I realise they’ve also rewarded the brilliant Attack The Block. It’s a pretty short and sweet little selection, but check out the additional Best and Worst of 2011 categories, as well as wins for both Rooney Mara and Bellflower. As ever, check out the full list of winners below: Continue reading

The 23rd Annual Producers Guild Awards – Nominations

This whole Tintin ‘animated’ debacle is still confusing me a little. IT’S NOT ANIMATED. And Jamie Bell told you this himself. I’m a little sad that The Tree Of Life didn’t get a mention and I guess I was far too hopeful to expect to see Drive pop up. But Bridesmaids sure seems to have sticking power. Check out the full list of PGA nominations below: Continue reading

The 64th Writers Guild Of America Awards – Nominations

I’m a little surprised not to see The Ides Of March included here, but I’m loving the inclusion of 50/50 and Win Win. As much as I’ve been perplexed by the amount of love McCarthy’s been getting for her role in Bridesmaids, it’s great to see it recognised here. Check out the full list of WGA nominees below: Continue reading

The 16th Annual Art Directors Guild Awards – Winners

No War Horse here. And what about The Tree Of Life, the most visually stunning film of the year?! And what was honestly so impressive about the production design of Bridesmaids? Yes, the wedding itself looked pretty cool, but apart from that it was all cakes, giant biscuits and more cakes – and projectile vomiting and diarrhoea. Somehow I don’t think the latter was taken into consideration. It’s good to see Anonymous slipping in there, as there was a great deal to look at and Tintin and The Cap are welcome additions in the fantasy category. Check out the winners below and see if you think predicting the Oscar nominees is any easier: Continue reading

2011 Alliance Of Women Film Journalists Award Nominations

The AWFJ have obviously had a lot of fun with their Actress Most In Need Of A New Agent and Hall Of Shame categories, but aside from that their choices aren’t particularly exciting (although they have opted for both Rickman and Serkis in the Best Supporting slot). Sacrilege occurs further down when naming Drive as a Movie You Wanted To Love But Just Couldn’t, but the Most Egregious Age Difference category is rather amusing. Check out these rather unconventional nominations below: Continue reading
